TodoIst offline

Just wanted to share a great tool I use: Todoist ( Great tool to manage your tasks in projects. I like the interaction a lot. Everything is AJAX, but you can do a lot on the task description input, such as “@hobby Find a new hobby !p1” to add a task “Find a new hobby” with priority 1 and tag “hobby”. Great for my tasks and follow-up lists. Recently they released a version that you can use offline as well. Really great when you are on a plane.

The only disadvantage is that they have limited the amount of projects to 80. Not great when you want to carefully keep track of a lot of things. If you agree, vote here:

Sign the petition

Something I usually wouldn’t do is call for people to sign a petition, but every time I see this commercial on TV, I get worked up about it. So, I guess it is time to call you to sign this petition after you have watched this video. How on earth can people do this?
